i followed the recipe as written. We found it to be a little bland. We couldn't taste any ginger or dijon. If I make this again I will definitely add more of these ingredients. Read More

I made these to go with my dad's birthday dinner. Everyone liked them. I used whole grain Dijon mustard. This gave a little more texture to the carrots. Read More

Well I'm never fixing plain carrots again I'll tell you that much. Just finished dinner and paired these with Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin from this site and oh my goodness what a meal. Served with oven roasted potatoes and onions and it was honestly one of the best meals we've ever had at home or out. I followed this exactly as written and used a bag of really teeny baby carrots (you know--now our grocery has baby carrots and then REALLY tiny baby carrots). Didn't change a darn thing from the recipe and they were perfectly delicious. Sprinkled just a tad bit of thyme over them as a little garnish and they were simply awesome. THANKS for a great recipe.

Jack Jen and I had this and really liked it. The first time I used regular carrots and sliced into coins. The second time I used baby carrots and sliced them in half. Also on the second prep it was just Jack and I so I halved the recipe and it came out great. Read More

This was awesome! I used regular carrots and added broccoli and steamed instead of boiled. I only had honey dijon mustard so I cut the brown sugar in half. I doubled the glaze because I thought I would need it. I had more than enough and my pork chops tasted great dipped in it. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I was looking for a different way to fix carrots and this fit the bill. I didn't have ground ginger so I used fresh grated instead. That was the only change. Read More
